Wellbeing that Works – morning retreat and lunch
A gentle retreat and lunch to help you get back to what really matters. You’ll leave feeling revived and resourced for whatever lies ahead.
Tired and fed up from the past few years of uncertainty and worry?
Overwhelmed by all the negative news and doom scrolling?
Wondering how to keep yourself going? (whilst feeling guilty because other people are much worse off than you?)
Take some time to be looked after and learn practical, tailor-made self care to help you keep going, even when it all feels a bit hopeless.
Join us in the peaceful surroundings of St Ethelwold’s House and gardens for a gentle morning of mindfulness and coaching activities. We’ll end by enjoying a delicious vegetarian lunch whilst connecting with ourselves and others who feel the same.
You’ll leave feeling nourished, refreshed and inspired with tools in your back pocket to manage difficulties whenever they arise and to savour the little moments of joy and beauty in your life.
All activities will be suitable for beginners, and you don’t have to be able to sit cross-legged on the floor!
Included in your ticket:
– Guided self-reflection and gratitude exercises led by Lynne Davies-Craine
– Meditation and self-compassion practices guided by Sally Harris
– Tea, coffee and snacks available throughout
– Delicious vegetarian lunch and cake to enjoy together
– Time to relax in the beautiful gardens at St Ethelwold’s House
